For all the top tier football taking place at the Euro 2020 tournament, it is the best dressed managers that have proven most eye-catching. With each passing match, the fashion stakes on the sidelines have continued to rise, with managers rolling out a series of impressive looks.
While icon status once belonged to those on the pitch, the best dressed managers have stolen the spotlight at this tournament, and we’re not mad about it.
The Best Dressed Managers
Robert Mancini ITALY
Given that Armani decked out the entire Italy squad, it is hardly surprising that Roberto Mancini looks just as sharp as the team he coaches. The 56-year-old has long been a style icon, but he has raised his game at Euro 2020, turning every match into a spectacle. More often than not, he teams his Armani with a pair of light blue shades, looking like an Italian movie star from the 1950s. With a manager so slick, it’s little wonder that Azzurri is a hot tip to take out this year’s tournament.
Gareth Southgate ENGLAND
Gareth Southgate’s vest ensemble became the stuff of legend after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, and while (sadly) he has laid waste to the waist coast, Southgate remains on-trend. He’s been most comfortable rocking suits by British menswear brand Percival. Southgate is an ambassador for the brand, and they’re also responsible for the smart knitted tie he rocked during England’s history-making win over Germany this week.
Andriy Shevchenko UKRAINE
In the long list of best dressed managers at the Euros, Ukrainian legend Andriy Shevchenko sits right near the top. The former Chelsea star overachieved at this year’s tournament, taking an underrated Ukranian side all the way to the quarter-finals. But it was pitchside where he did his best work, dazzling spectators with his chino and button-down combo. Chuck in his striking Eastern Bloc good looks, and you have one fine manager.
Didier Deschamps FRANCE
Didier ‘Daddy’ Deschamps continues to show that age is just a number. The silver fox was at the helm for France, and while his team impressed on the pitch, Deschamps impressed off it. Rocking nothing but neutrals and sporting a short grey haircut, Deschamps was the sexy uncle of Euro 2020.
Luis Enrique SPAIN
Every lineup needs an outlier, and when it comes to the best dressed managers at Euro 2020, that man is Luis Enrique. In a sea of bespoke suits, the Spain manager is prepared to go against the tide and channel the laidback divorced dad look. Casual white Oxford, green cargos and topped off with Adidas sneakers, Enrique is not only cool, but he’s comfortable too.
Paulo Sousa POLAND
Move over Southgate; there’s a new waistcoat in town. Polish coach Paulo Sousa has demanded attention over the past few weeks thanks to his penchant for a tight-fitting vest. The Portuguese coach has mixed up his looks at the tournament, but it’s hard to go past this number for sheer audacity.
